Well, if blessing New York with an amazing pop-up of vintage watches a few months back wasn’t enough, our friends at HODINKEE have setup a similar offering for folks in the Bay area for this weekend. Mission-based retailer Taylor Stitch is playing host to the first ever West Coast HODINKEE pop-up store and we’ve got a preview of what to expect before making your way over to Valencia Street. Beyond all the timepieces, HODINKEE is bringing along some of the goods from their online shop which offers up Italian-made watch straps and pouches for your most valuable possessions.
The offerings will range from classics to cult watches like a vintage IWC Ingenieur and Omega Bullhead chrono, to a veritable British Military issued mono-pusher chrono from Lemania. We have really special collector’s pieces like an early Heuer Carrera Dato from 1967 with a black dial (try to find another one for sale right now), to one of the rarest vintage Rollies around – the Ref 1530 (an automatic watch in the case usually used for quartz – aka Rolex’s answer to the Royal Oak and their first watch with a sapphire crystal).
The show starts today and runs until Sunday evening, with daily hours being from 11am to 7pm. Taylor Stitch is located at 383 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA. Scroll down to catch a glimpse of what to expect.
Levi’s Made & Crafted have set up shop inside Brooklyn-based retailer, Smith + Butler. It’s a great join, as both brands are known for their passion for traditional American style. The pieces in Made & Crafted’s Spring 2012 collection keep this in mind while still being modern and wearable. The range includes denim, tees, woven shirts, outerwear, and accessories.

We’re a day away from the launch of this year’s Pop-Up Flea here in NYC and some pretty major news just came through the wire. Online watch publication Hodinkee is launching their first Pop-Up Store at the event. So what’s up for grabs, you ask? The type of stuff you expect to be reading about on Hodinkee. Ben Clymer & Co. have done an amazing job lining up the offerings. We’re talking vintage watches, old clocks, pocket watches, vintage watch advertisements and posters, and other old-timey watch miscellanea. They’ll even have a bunch of NATO straps in different colors, along with some Horween leather and suede NATOs and straps.
We have just a ton of great stuff, ranging from just $350 up to a few thousand. We will be accepting all major credit cards and we promise you, this will be the best vintage watch buying opportunity in New York city in all of 2011. We’ll have a good range of Rolex (more affordable than you think) Omega (including some seriously awesome Speedmasters), Heuer, Universal Geneve, LeCoultre, Longines, Hamilton, Breitling, etc.
The Pop-Up Flea kicks off tomorrow at 3PM and will run Saturday and Sunday as well. You’ve got three days to get your hands on some really exceptional product. For a more detailed look at some of the offerings, head on over to Hodinkee.
